I'm here to help you.

Through one-on-one sessions and group workshops, I promote the success of each individuals in their educational journeys towards their professional aspirations. I specialize in college application advising for prospective undergradute and graduate students.

While acceptance and scholarships are not guaranteed, my students have found their successes at over 100 schools with over $8 million in scholarship offers.

Meet Coach Michelle

With over a decade of experience, including with my own children, I have a pragmatic yet caring style of advising. Along with deep familiarity of the application process, I understand the emotional investment involved when reaching for a goal, especially with the college application process.

Utilizing my toolkit and wealth of experiences, my students define their goals, write essays from their heart, and keep to the task at hand. My large professional and social networks have been helpful to students as they explore their career options.

Advising doesn’t just apply to the students – parents sometimes have more questions than their future students! I teach what’s necessary to keep students competitive in the growing population of college applicants.

Success Stories

College tours: not just for students

College visits are an important part of the application process. In our meetings, I talk with students and parents about planning college visits, what to look for on a campus tour, as well as how and why to get off the beaten path while on campus. Also, I encourage students to be aware of the intangible ‘gut feeling’ of being on each campus.
